1900 Route 31, Macedon
Our very own local movie theater, Canaltown Cinema, and Macedon Public Library are proud to sponsor a screening of Josiah Henson: The Real Uncle Tom. You’ll be riveted by the story of this amazing man, on whom Harriet Beecher Stowe based her title character in Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The story of the Rev. Josiah Henson is little-known, but worth learning about. Rev. Henson was born into slavery and eventually found freedom only after being sabotaged for exhibiting an astounding amount of dignity. Josiah Henson: The Real Uncle Tom will take you on a visual journey from the historic Uncle Tom’s Cabin in Maryland, to Kentucky, and ultimately, to the famous underground railroad. THERE IS NO CHARGE to attend this screening. The theater will have snacks for sale for those interested in snacking while watching the film.
